Melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer, it spreads fast and knows no boundaries. It is the UK's fastest growing cancer with around 12,000 new cases every year - a fourfold increase since the 1970s. It is the most common form of cancer in young adults. That is why intense research is needed into finding a cure for this cancer.

Rob was diagnosed with melanoma late February 2012. An intense 11 months followed of surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, more surgery and a new type of immunology treatment called ipilimumab. Rob took on everything with such braveness and strength and fought so hard until the very end - January 2013, Age 34. He leaves behind two young children and a loving wife. We will miss him forever more, but if something good can come out of such a wonderful man's death, please let it be research into finding a cure for melanoma.

We thank you very much.
